Our latest issue is now available, so do take a look.
Featured on the front cover, Qingdong Zheng from the Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter, Fuzhou, China, and co-workers, report on the synthesis and characterization of two silylated BODIPY dyes and their use in dye-encapsulated silica nanoparticles with switchable emitting wavelengths for cellular imaging. In order to realise multiplexed imaging, they doped two different dyes into the same nanoparticle, which is able to emit light with different colors based on a change in excitation wavelengths.
